The start of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse National Championship between top-seeded Notre Dame and seventh-seeded Maryland has been delayed to inclement weather.

Moments after the National Anthem concluded around noon on Memorial Day, the NCAA announced the start time —which already had been pushed up from 1 p.m. —would be delayed.

As a downpour hovered over South Philadelphia, the Fighting Irish and Terrapins evacuated the sidelines and retreated to their respective locker rooms at Lincoln Financial Field.

Fans in attendance also were encouraged to seek shelter as the NCAA issued the following statement:

“A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued by the national weather service for our area. These storms may produce sever conditions, including lightning and strong winds.

“For your safety, we encourage you to exit the open seating area at this time and seek shelter along the concourses.”

The NCAA later announced the two teams would return to the field at 12:50 p.m. –– with a new anticipated start time of 1 p.m.That was then pushed back again to a 2 p.m. return to field for the two teams.
